“The 2023 election drums have been beaten up, and many politicians have started selling their interests and promise to Nigerians especially young people who are going up and down to ensure sure they come to power at the end they will not fulfil their promises.

“They are making noise, setting all forms of political gimmicks by feeding people lies and promising them possible and impossible things.

“I ask young people to vote wisely for candidates that will fulfil their promises and also lead them to the next level of development

“In this market of political interest, politics to them is an art of manipulation of personal interest which seems like national interest, the politics of saying anything just to get political power.

“The central and sub-central governments have crowded with mundane political meetings sole aim is to get into power through whatever means. Whereas the masses are left with no trust in those political institutions. Voter anger is skyrocketing at an alarming rate which would invariably affect our nascent democracy.”

While urging youths to refrain from being used by politicians in perpetrating violence, the Speaker, added that youths should channel their interest in entrenching peace and unity.

“This is an appeal to all Northern youths to avoid any act of political thuggery or anything that will lead them to lose focus during and after the election

“The ability of young people to determine the candidate base on credibility and ability to perform certain social functions coupled with the manifesto of the party and constantly navigate of the activities of each party would ensure good governance which would bring political development.

“The development of a nation requires the effort of many variables. People should understand that in the political sphere, there must be a relationship between the ruler, the ruler and the ruled. The rule elect and the ruler harmonise, determine and coordinate and the ruled then benefits,” he said.
